I am surprised that the owners will let you park on the lawn. That lawn could be totally ruined if the grass is wet.

Nevertheless, you can rope off the parking area with plastic tape attached to stakes and provide a sign:


You can even get the tape custom printed if you want.

You have a choice of several beautiful sites for the ceremony. If you do a search here on WeddingBee you will find many ideas to decorate the gazebo.

If you add mini lights to the gazebo, it will be pretty at night and also be a great site for some pics.

The barbecue area would be perfect for dancing. You can have glowing balls in the pool. You can buy them or make your own with a glow stick or Balloominator  inserted inside a balloon.

You could also use luminarias to line the sidewalk.

Do lots of research here and on Pinterest. You will have more ideas than you know what to do with.

i would look into tents… because you just never know what the weather is going to do and a contigency plan is always good to have.

Just a word of warning it can be seriously difficult, nerve wracking and expensive to try to rent a tent last minute. The last party I had it looked like a chance of rain so FIVE days before I called around trying to secure a tent. The first three companies no luck (not enough manpower, out of tents, just mad I would expect such miracles}, the fourth company thought they could do it but wouldn’t know for sure until morning of, the fifth company said no problem but since it would mean OT for their crew they wanted almost double $1591 ๐Ÿ˜ฎ  Needless to say for our wedding we will not be using tents! I found a great summer camp and I can ren the whole thing including guest cabins for $500.

As to how to decorate the space I can never top jules but I will second pinterest. Beware though it is addictive!

Beautiful venue and the first poster gave you some really great ideas to start off with. I love the flowy ribbon as ceremony backdrop and am thinking of using that idea. Also, since everything is going to be outside, it’s too risky not to have a backup plan.  If tents are out, scope out someplace inside the house where you could host the reception if you needed to.  Good luck.

If you are concerned about the tents, we talked to our rental place and they said we could hold a tent & cancel by Wednesday of that week.  That way we’d at least have some sort of idea of the forecast.  I hope that helps!!  Lovely location!
